Trailer Tuesday - The Noise of Cairo
is a documentary about the art scene in Cairo after the revolution. It features artists, writers, musicians, dancers and gallerists talking about how the artistic expression has changed after the revolution in Egypt last year.
“The Noise of Cairo” is a cinematic adventure, following the interplay between art and the revolution in Egypt.
